Having said that the characteristic MINI design elements remain including the elliptical headlights, hexagonal radiator grille and bonnet scoop. Of course, the car also gets the GP logo to leave no doubt about its pedigree. Finished in an exquisite high-gloss paint, the JCW GP carries an aura of sportiness and exclusivity that gives you the impression that it is moving even when at standstill.
Built using lightweight materials such as carbon fibre, the Mini John Cooper Works GP edition boasts of an optimized power-to-weight ratio with a fantastic axle load distribution that ensures it handles like a go-kart even when pushed through corners.

The cabin is a combination of purist sporty flair and luxury thanks to the generous use of high quality materials. The overall theme includes a dark colour with colour accents that bring out a sporty appeal and point towards the car’s tribute to motor racing. The JCW GP also gets a new free-standing digital instrument cluster on the steering column that gives the driver all the relevant information without them having to take their eyes off the road.
